A ten year old line of obsolete code which has never been removed from Quicktime, has allowed malicious code through the backdoor.

Wowzers I hope this outing makes Apple fix the code (how strange that there's no unpatched security bulletin for this on any of the security boards I frequent)

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

There's a fix from MS to disable DLL search in the Current Working Directory, a.k.a. CWD.

http://support.micro...2264107&x=9&y=9

Install this, and then:

  1. Open Registry Editor.
  2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
  3. Right-click Session Manager, point to New, and then click Dword Value.
  4. Type CWDIllegalInDllSearch, and then click Modify.
  5. In the Value data box, type FFFFFFFF, and then click OK.
